- n. herbs and subshrubs: African daisy
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The ‘sunset’ theme of hot colors and jam packed plantings is maintained as the tulips, wallflowers, aquilegias and arctotis of spring are switched out to the verbascums, red hot pokers, cannas, crocosmias and dahlias of summer.
This leaves your pots free for summer arctotis or dahlias to take you through to autumn tulip planting again.
It's arctotis and survives with minimal water, but looks dead except in the rainy season.
